    Default Rookies on MBTI

    Many of you would look at someone's post and say, "Damn, that person is a noob". Well, on MBTI most of their members knows the tricks around the forum, but what if you don't? How are you going to learn when everyone treats the other harsely. And many of you are going to correct me.

    Because ever place you go here, there's always going to be someone there to correct you, on what they find is offensive, or on what they find is different.

    What I noticed is that there is a steep learning process. This is not something that you can just jump into. But of course you get to introduce yourself and ask others what your type is... but are they really ready for the MBTI member's judgement or opinion?

    Just voicing some thoughts. I'm not looking for answers, but it would be nice to read some.

    Only posting 60, that makes me a noob.

    Oh, I didn't find it too hard. The folks around here are nice, polite and fun if you ask me. Maybe I don't understand what you are saying...?

    This forum isn't all that harsh on n00bs. If you're worried about it, just lurk for a bit. Don't respond just to respond.

    Also, I wouldn't depend on other people to determine my type.

    It seems just like any other forum, or any group of people.

    You might just need to hang around a bit until you get used to people and find your right current. Same with any other social interaction (, I find).

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I can't say I regcognise what you say.
    Along with INTPc, this was the first forum I ever used, and I learned that if you follow the same "rules of conduct" that apply IRL, you get a long way here. (INTPc was a bit more challenging since INTP-culture is slightly different from society's ).
    I hope that in the meanwhile you feel better about MBTIc...

    Steep learning curve to learn about the MBTI? Yes.
    Steep learning curve to get to the point where other's listen? No.

    Just post. If people react badly to your innocence or your thoughts, baring being outright offensive, then just forget them. Personally I have little patience for the intolerant.

    I'm not a noob when it comes to MBTI at all but I am a noob to forums. This is the first forum ive ever joined and this is only my third day. Yesterday I topped out at 155 posts...a tad too much. So ya if anyone is reading this...my bad lol. Apparently thats a lot.

    ya i need to chill when people do this. i tend to take it personally. then again, i haven't had a good past couple days and that tends to be a defence mechanism. but this is a good way of looking at it. My problem with the internet is I cant see someones intent or motives if they reply in an "offensive" way. In real life, if someone disagrees with me I'm generally happy about it, as my signature states. online is a different story, i dont quite know how to handle it.

    I have done no tests and rely on other people to type me.

    This has worked out really well.

    My first type was by someone who really didn't like me and they gave me a wonderful type - something I would never have guessed myself - and something I would never find on a test.

    The truth is your enemies know you better than your friends and your enemies are the more truthful - you can rely on your enemies to tell the truth, while your friends will save your feelings.

    My next two types were by fair minded individuals and the types were almost identical. So I am trying one after the other to see how they fit.

    Of course the nicest thing you could do for me would be to tell me what type you think I am.

    Hmmm = ENFP..


    Ni is your bane.

    A one question survey to establish if someone is an ENFP.
    Q. Are you paranoid.

    If answer is like "No. Why?" subject is ENFP.
